Where2Golf says: 

Bokskogens Golfklubb (Gamla/Old course): Superb greens (completely re-laid in 2002) and an excellent layout, will ensure your enjoyment of Bokskogen's Gamla Banan (Old Course). In a splendidly natural and very quiet setting, beside a fairly substantial lake, this well maintained golf course is certain to please. With a mainly open feel and holes generously spaced apart, only the deep rough (set well back from the fairways) will interfere with those booming drives .... oh, and there is a bit of water to watch out for on a few tee-shots. The sting is in the tail with many a card wrecked at the tight, dog-leg par-4 17th (which requires crossing a dry stone wall), and the tight drive at the par-5 18th is also a bit of a knee-trembler.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
